Quotes

[Reed Tucker is about to destroy a desk live on Chatterbox]
Lazlow: This desk is made of 2-inch thick composite wood and has a mahogany venear finish. It has three drawers and knowing this station, it cost $100. In his own words, Reed Tucker is about to smash it into two half desks. Take it away, Reeve.
Reed Tucker: Ladies and gentlemen, I've already visualized the desk in two half desks, and now I shall make it so... dragon stance... hii-YA! Ohhh, ow, oh Lazlow, Lazlow, I think I hurt my hand... my pinky's all bent...

This game didn't break the mould…
16 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It destroyed all the previous ones.

This game is one of the true landmarks on gaming.

Grand Theft auto was a superb gaming idea hobbled by the lack of computer power. Don't get me wrong the 2D versions was really fun but I'm sure that everyone who played it realised that the first attempt at sandbox innovation needed something more.

Then after fading away for a few years I heard on the internet about GTA III. OMG I thought, "what the hell is this" Then I watched one of the first 3D trailers and I was hooked by just the idea of a true 3D GTA game.

GTA III is a truly groundbreaking game, it has lifted gaming to a new level and laid down a standard to gamers that developers have been chasing ever since.

This game might be dated but it will forever hold it's place at a true innovation in gaming that will be remembered for a very long time….
